Re: [DISCUSS] Accept money contributions

Oleksandr Porunov <alexand...@...>

Due to inactivity of the discussion, I am going to make actions by my own and register necessary accounts for JanusGraph.

If anyone has opposite opinion, please write it in this thread.

I think, that a paid Travis plan would help us with:
1) Run tests faster due to a bigger amount of concurrent  jobs. Sometimes where several PRs are committed it takes days to Travis to finish building.
2) Run long running jobs. We don't currently run TinkerPop tests regularly because they are too long (~8 hours) to be executed by Travis. It makes a process of TinkerPop upgrading much harder.

Travis plans are listed here:

Currently, the plan which has the same amount of concurrent jobs as the free plan (5) is "Small Business" plan. If we buy it, than the pros is that we will be able to run long running jobs.

If we buy "Premium" plan, we will have 10 concurrent jobs and long running and possibility to execute long running jobs.

Best regards,
Oleksandr Porunov

I didn't research much, but I think we could try to enable some platform which will work to collect money contributions which we can spent on some expenses. I didn't research much how it works but I think we could use the contributed money for something like:
- Buy commercial Travis plan to be able to run TinkerPop tests clearly
- Hiring a full-time developer / developers to the project
- Tickets to conferences to present JanusGraph

It is just a simple ideas. I didn't research deep but the platforms we could look at are: 
- possibly some other platforms

What the community think about this step? Do you think it could be useful?
